Papers of the Barbados Committee, 1710-1842

X series. So important were the West Indies islands in the eighteenth century that various committees of planters and of merchants existed, chiefly in the City of London, to deal with the West India interests which had the additional support of West India agents representing the interests of the various islands in the House of Commons.

The Barbados Committee of the SPG was established in 1710 and its records run until 1832. It was headed by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and the Bishop of London. It met frequently, at least once a month if not more often, and a sub-committee was set up apparently by the mid-eighteenth century. These bodes were concerned with everyday matters, the college, the catechists and the running of the estate. Lay members, sometimes leading West India planters, were co-opted from time to time and in spite of the routine discussion of clerical matters, it is clear that the Barbados Committee was also concerned extensively with the management of the estates and the need to secure profits therefrom. Although primarily a church body, the Barbados Committee, which meticulously preserved its accounts, kept formal minutes of its meetings and may be regarded as a small but not insignificant part of the West India interest in London in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century.
